Please welcome The Pellys to Bear Kids Recordings! We are proud to be digitally releasing their debut release, the Hail Jake EP, on October 7th. These guys are straight out of the suburbs of Grayson, Georgia, but poised to make a splash in Atlanta. With the scrappy and jangly garage-pop stylings of brothers-in-arms Twin Peaks, The Orwells, and Girls, and lyrics that reflect a lovelorn wisdom, The Pellys are ready to demonstrate just why they are one of Atlanta's best new rock bands. Stay tuned for more, but in the meantime, get to know the band at their Facebook page and revisit the premiere of the first track off their upcoming EP, "Shiny Things,"...

Wasted Wine debuting video game at Dragon*Con 1 September 2016

Wasted Wine is known for their off-kilter music and unconventional style, something that makes us personally very fond of them. The band is playing every day this year at Dragon*Con, starting with an epic kickoff tonight at midnight, and tabling when not performing. True to their style, they are celebrating Dragon*Con with the debut of a new game called "Escape from the Hypnosis Center," which looks a little bit like Doom except they're shooting cassette tapes instead of bullets. It looks quite amazing. If you're at D*C this year, stop by and give it a try. And of course we still, amazingly, have a few copies of Wasted Wine vs. The Hypnosis Center available in Read More

We are now including selling digital downloads direct from our store, which works much like Bandcamp in that you are able to select any format you want, e.g. mp3, FLAC, etc. This is an excellent alternative to iTunes, Amazon, and Google and we (the label and the artists) get a much more favorable portion of your purchase when ordering this way. We are certainly not abandoning our worldwide digital distribution to those retailers or any streaming services, but we are happy to be able to...
